hi everybody,
I met the dalai lama "by accident" when I was 17. And since then -I am 27 years old now- I was fascinated and when getting older interested in the buddhistic "way of life", but I just didn't know what to do with it. last week there was a lecture, where a friend took me. and i thought it was a good hing to satisfy my curiosity. it was a lecture by ole nydahl. first i was totally impressed and trapped by his charisma, but after a couple of days the whole thing broke down and I started to be in doubt about everything. so what did i do? i googled "ole nydahl" and all these articles about him, just were in complete agrement with my negative experience. so now, i have these negative feelings about the whole buddhism thing, and will try to find a non-lamaole-community in vienna...which is not so easy...i don't matter which website i took, i always ended up at "lama" ole. at the end i found a buddhistic centre, which has nothing to do with ole nydahl, it seems....
any suggestions???

best from vienna (austria)

PS: if my friend reads this: i am so sorry. but this is just not the right thing for me, as it obviously is for you...
